The 24 STEP TAIJI FORM IS A SHORT VERSION OF YANG STYLE TAIJIQUAN long form. The shorter version contains most of the moves of the long form but deletes much of the repetition. This newer form of taiji is practiced by millions of people around the world as a gentle yet stimulating exercise. FYI: "Taiji" (tie gee) is the modern spelling of "Tai Chi".

A helpful DVD of me doing the form will be available for home practice. Most sessions will have qigong exercises that enhance the meditative aspect of taiji, some easy conditioning exercises for flexibility and strength, and push hands play with a partner for fun and understanding why we do what we do in taiji. I will occassionally talk about the Taiji Classics and how the principles of taiji apply to everyday life.

"This gentle form of exercise can help maintain strength, flexibility and balance
and may be the perfect exercise for the rest of your life."

a9944fb0 89ee 43d3 8b60 36678ea7f02fI first learned the long form of taiji in 1986. After several years of practice and learning other forms, I discovered the new 24 Step Taiji in workshops with several taiji masters. Eventually grandmaster Shouyu Liang became my main teacher. While I respect the tradition of all major taiji schools (Yang, Chen, Sun, Wu), I always come back to the simple but profound form of 24 Step Taiji. This form, and its supplemental trainings, have been my most consistent type of exercise for thirty years. It has helped my body stay loose and connected; it has helped my mind stay clear and calm. I enjoy doing taiji and I love teaching it to others so that they too can benefit from this amazing Meditation in Motion that is based on an Internal Martial Art. 

"Although qigong and taiji are excellent fitness activities
for beginners and people with health conditions,
elite athletes also benefit from doing the slow movements
because everyone needs better balance and muscle control."
